Teen Book Review

The Saturdays by Elizabeth Enright

Rating 5

Reviewed by Jane, grade 8

The Saturdays, written by Elizabeth Enright, is about the Melendys, a family of four children who declare they are wasting their Saturdays by doing nothing.  Mona, the oldest is interested in poetry and Shakespeare.  Rush is twelve and the second oldest.  Randy is ten and a half and enjoys dancing and painting pictures.  Oliver is the youngest.  Every Saturday, one of the Melendy children pools their siblings' allowance and they go on a Saturday adventure.  I would recommend this title because it is a fun, light-hearted book that shows one family's way of dealing with boring Saturdays!
